Thought I’d post a few weird ideas that were sitting on the drawing board for awhile. From left to right:
Transformers Vacuum – This is a weird one, but a canister vacuum that looks like Decepticon Mixmaster. Transforms from cement mixer to vacuum. This could also have a Tonka appearance.
Skeletor Havoc Staff Coat Rack – Park your coats here or remove the staff from the base and use it as a prop to command your ineffectual henchmen.
Automated Driving Cart For Garbage – Automated cars will be filling the landscape over the next decade, but I think baby steps are in order. How about an automated cart that drives your garbage bins to the curb and back? It could run on solar power, which would charge over the 6 days between trips.
Speaking of garbage bins, wouldn’t it be nice if they came with a latch so you can hook them together like a train and drag them out to the curb in one go? They already have a bar in the front for the garbage truck to grab, so you just need a hook in the back.
Switched over to the LED bulbs in my apartment. They cast a nauseating and sterile white light. Why don’t they make them emit a soft amber color like old-school bulbs? I miss the “warmth” of the old bulbs. It looks like a department store in here. EDIT: they do make “yellow” LED bulbs, but I have yet to see them on shelves.
I murdered yet another spatula with my culinary prowess. There needs to be true teflon-coated spatula that can withstand the heat and be gentle on your cookware. Seems like a no-brainer to me (there are a few marketed as “teflon” but they are just nylon coated).

Warm white LEDs do exist; they are just harder to find. And they aren’t available in a lot of configurations of wattage & shape.
Thanks for the info! Canada has banned the old-school bulbs so LEDs are everywhere, and sadly only in plain white as far as I can find. The warm/yellow should be the default kind, in my opinion.
Keep-up the Geeky Ideas *and*… think about patents because you just might make your next million dollars yet! Also admired, your graphics which are really top-notch and I couldn’t help but wonder what kind of editing program that you use to do it?
Thanks again for your updates which are always a pleasure to look forward to. I especially liked the ‘Slurm’ Vending Machine – even though the product is ‘highly addictive’ (but at least there was warning).
Best regards! John
Thanks JD! I use Blender for 3D, Inkscape for vector, and GIMP for photo editing. All of the programs are free.
I like the ideas! Cool graphics, by the way.
Here’s one for ya since I’ll probably never get around to it, Teletraan-1 entertainment center
